      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Stolen Deer Stand!!!

Recommended Posts

A Lone Wolf Alpha tree stand and a set of Lone Wolf tree steps were stolen from the Burnsville area this weekend. The belong to FM member chuckwagon. If anyone seems or hears anything about a Lone Wolf combo for sale please email or post.

I know Chuck will post about it when he gets a chance, but I wanted to get it out right away cause unless the person is going to keep it, they usually try to unload it pretty fast.

This is a brand new stand and steps stolen during a management hunt.

my email is epfd217 at gmail dot com

It wasn't left overnite on a WMA was it? I've noticed on the DNR HSOforum, conservation officers reports that they have removed "a bunch" of stands left overnite on WMA's this fall and also issued a few citations for this.

I usually lock my stands in for those hunts. I sometime pull the bottom climbing stick and hide it on the ground a little ways away as well. Only takes a couple seconds to put up one climbing stick.

I got one stolen a couple years ago but it wasn't a Lone Wolf!

Was it left on public land? If so I guess he should have known better and I'm with Archerystud on this one, But I will keep an eye out for it on [YouNeedAuthorization] for him. When you say a management hunt where did this hunt take place? Pretty Vague if it was on public or private land.

unfortunately we have to worry about this [PoorWordUsage] happening. grrr! but the best way to prevent it from happening is to bring out what you bring in on public land.

Bummer man. I've noticed a few stands with missing lower steps, its a good idea just to prevent spur of the moment thefts.

And yes, the COs and WMA managers have been confiscating stands, I have run into two separate groups on public land the last 3 weeks that have been taking down illegal stands

In 2 years I've lost 3 stands and 1 trail cam. All were locked. It's a bummer but a reality in today's woods. I've bounced back and has some very memorable seasons anyhow and I hope your buddy does the same. I feel for him and am wishin a booner for him soon.

Browning - I do quite a bit of hunting that way. I go back on a minimum maintaince road just off of 40 right before Hackensack. I thought I was the only one in the area that used a portable but this past weekend was the first ever for me to see someone else had one set up. Not sure if they were bowhunting or having it ready for next weekend. I hope they had it locked because they set it up only 40 yards off the trail and if someone wanted to they can drive back there and load it in there truck in a matter of minutes. I looked like a very nice stand - ladder stand with swivel type seat.

I just looked from the regs and it says personal property MUST be removed from state forest lands. any unoccupied stand on public land is considered public and not the property of the person who contructed the stand. also, in wildlife areas and state parks that allow hunting, only portable stands may be used. They MUST NOT be left overnight.

Looks to me like it is unlawful to leave ANY stand on public land over night. Thats the way i read it anyway.

For state forests, I think that the stand becomes public property if it is left overnight, so it is not necessarily illegal to leave the stand overnight, but it no longer belongs to the person who left it.

On page 72 of the Reg. book it states, "Any unoccupied, permanent stand or blind on public land is public and not property of the person who constructed the stand. Any use of threat or force against another person to gain possession of a stand is unlawful."

I had a stand stolen a couple years ago on public land, I spoke with the local CO and he stated that it is legal to leave a portable overnight and the way that I interpret the regulation is that a portable is not public property, just permanent stands. Regardless, I won't be leaving my stands overnight anymore.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
